Éléonore CHARRON (1826-1912)

Éléonore CHARRON (François+Marie-Angélique AYOTTE) founded the Roman Catholic religious community of women known as the Sisters of Sainte-Martha (Soeurs Ste-Marthe) in St-Hyacinthe, QC in 1883. The community's main purpose was to serve priests and seminarians by cooking, sewing and housekeeping. Nowadays, the sisters are also involved in pastoral work and the making of hosts to be used (consecrated) during the celebration of the Eucharist.
